Anyhow… this truck is looking awesome! I’m excited about driving back to Texas and getting a “traveling parts” list together in my head. It will be my first split window trip and any advice is appreciated. Think I’ll be needing to wrangle up a spare tire… Wondering if we’ll make it up Imogene…RustabusParticipantMarch 6, 2018 at 5:58 amPost count: 941
The more you bring, the less will break!! 😉 😉 🙂 I’d suggest a travel tool kit, points, plugs, condenser,coil, spare tire, extra belt, some fuel line, FIRE EXTINGUISHER, fuses………… maybe a wheel bearing and seal……???? Try to cover a few simple breakdown problems and call it done!!!!! Yes, you can likely pull an engine with a 2X4, adjustable wrench and 3 big rocks but unless you need to, just cover a few mechanical bases and enjoy your Bus!!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂BBWBParticipantMarch 6, 2018 at 6:18 amPost count: 523
As new as this rig is going to be, spare tire and AAA towing insurance. But what Rusty said; it has all the basics covered for most any issue your likely to encounter. Maybe a few quarts of oil too.

Shit you just need a pair of sun glasses and to relax and enjoy the ride!! AAA and a spare tire would be good to just in case. After KCW built my bus I drove it for 2 years and never left me stranded. I have dual carbs so they are tricky. You shit is going to run like a top just cruise at 55 mph the hole way and u will be fine. Top speed for a breakin cruise about 60 and your set is my 2 cents?Paul SextonParticipantMarch 6, 2018 at 1:25 pmPost count: 87
